Our field teams are in full preparation mode, preparing the soil and putting this planting season’s first seedlings in the ground!
As always, the team has been incredible this year, adapting and creating solutions to plant as many native trees as possible despite the challenges we have faced.
During the last planting season, we observed incredibly positive results when planting via direct seeding. For this reason, we have decided to use direct seeding as a restoration method for around half of our restoration areas.
What is direct seeding?
Direct seeding refers to planting native seeds directly in the area to be restored. Have a look at how this technique looks below:
Our team usually grows during the planting season, so that we can plant as many native trees as possible. This makes safety measures especially important during this time. To ensure the well-being of the team, our dedicated work safety engineer, Matheus Monteiro dos Santos, has been working hard to develop health and safety measures and ensure that these are in place at all of our restoration sites and nurseries.
Health and safety procedures
Before our team starts carrying our ecological restoration, they go through different medical exams, as well as practical and theory training sessions in work safety, and safe operation of machinery.
Have a look at some of the BJF team after their first theoretical and practical training sessions:
